minority leader mitch mcconnell, but senato harry reid was very involved in all this, and the hold up for the last six some hours this evening, the republican leader, senate minority leader, mitch mcconnell, and the white house had fundamentally come to an agreement on principle, and there was this stall in the talks for the last hours tonight. it was because democratic leader harry reid was refusing to give in on some points that were very important to the democrats. and so he's won some concessions, and that should help make the vice president's sell even easier tonight. you know, there are some people saying, look, don't say we have a deal until you know, everyone signs on inside that room. now, what we know is that there is a deal in principle between reid, mcconnell, and the white house. that is the major hurdle they had to overcome, and it's now all but the selling, and of course, the voting, wolf. >> they have to draft it and put it in a form of legislation. dana bash is our senior congressional correspondent. is there anything else, jessica, you wanted to add before we bring i

this is now for harry reid and mitch mcconnell to decide and they couldn't either the when they actually did vote on new year's eve it undermined what has been the governing rule of the republicans for the past decade, which is nothing should pass without a majority vote and they didn't have a majority vote, and then immediately turned around to re-elect him speaker. it was never really in doubt. but i think having 12 votes, essentially 12 votes on the floor against -- against his speakership being re-elected with only 220 votes does not send a message of strength going into these next rounds. gwen: and mike, when all is said and done -- nice pen drop there! -- when all is said and didn't you president was still able to wrangle his basics. he wanted to be able to raise taxes on the wealthy, however you define wealthy, and he got that. >> certainly the white house and other democrats look at this and say this is a water shed moment. we got the democrats to break the cardinal, visceral value they have, raising taxes. the only problem is on new year's day taxes were already high. but hell hath
